Agriculture Technology

Agriculture is a vital and dynamic force in the British Columbia economy. A significant part of the population is concerned with one or more of the many aspects of supplying food and other agricultural products to the province and to markets around the world. Whether you are interested in a comprehensive two-year diploma, a one-year livestock, horticulture, or integrated pest management certificate, or the 12-week milker training program, the UCFV Agriculture Technology department can meet your training needs.

Departmental mission statement

Our mission is to meet and anticipate the educational needs of our students as they prepare for careers of excellence in agriculture. Our programs emphasize holistic management practices that are compatible with agricultural sustainability while addressing society’s concerns about food safety, animal welfare, and the environment. We are pro-active in meeting the changing needs and visions of British Columbia agriculture by providing education and applied research services in the horticulture and livestock sectors, and in integrated pest management.

Students from all parts of British Columbia who are interested in pursuing an agricultural career can take a one or two-year Agriculture Technology certificate or diploma program at UCFV's Chilliwack campus. Students are given the opportunity to acquire training in modern business management, production, environmental stewardship, and marketing techniques as they apply to agricultural production. Each of the program options provides an excellent balance between theory and practice. The one-year certificate programs transfer completely to the two-year diploma.

The Continuing Studies department also offers a variety of courses in agriculture, including a certificate program in Floral Design. See the Continuing Studies brochure, issued twice yearly, for details.
